The sandwich has been claimed to have been invented by many different people, including Denver restaurateur Albert A. McVittie in 1907 as well as M. D. Looney, of Denver, in the same year. It has also been claimed that the “Denver sandwich” was invented at Denver’s Taber Hotel but mentions of it in newspapers predate all these claimants.
As early as 1908 it was known as the “Western Sandwich”, cited in a San Antonio newspaper. A “Manhattan Sandwich” (cited from 1909) was similar in that it contained fried egg, minced ham, and onion.
